    As the Lumia 830s were recently Updated to the 8.1 Update 2( Denim) , I was wondering if the Windows 10 previews contain the Denim code especially for the camera?

    No. It will not inherently upgrade an 830 to Denim if it did not have it already.

    Most 830s should be able to get it anyway though, especially since the ATT model got the update.

    So, since I already had Denim before I updated to W10M, my phone should still have it, right?

    What if I do a hard Reset?

    If you on WP 10 and you do a hard reset you stay on W10.

    yes, a hard reset will keep you on whatever os/firmware version you were on before the reset. Also, if you are on the Windows 10 insider and didn't upgrade to Denim beforehand, then you have 2 choices as we have no clue how long or even how official upgrades to the non-insider win 10 builds will go. (if you'll get missing firmware and whatever customizations from the carrier)

    you can backup your phone, use WDRT (Windows Device Recovery Tool) to go back to 8.1 with Denim, don't restore, install insider, upgrade to 10, hard reset, and then recover.... which can take HOURS!!!!

    or you can wait and see how the official Windows 10 rollout works :)

    Upgrading won't affect firmware.
    Hard resetting won't affect firmware or the OS installed.
